Coding And Marking - Food & Beverage Manufacturers Considerations

Nutritional information, potential allergens, alcohol content, and information on packages that is permanent and marked legibly so consumers can easily read and understand what they are consuming - there are a wide range of standards that must be met by manufacturers in the food and beverage industries. Products relay a huge amount of information, and considering the complexity of QR codes, barcodes, and other codes, the coding and marking equipment you choose for your manufacturing process must be cost-effective for your company, and easy to use. Flexibility and portability are essential; as a manufacturer, you want to be able to integrate your coder into any area of the production line quickly and efficiently. It's also critical that the equipment you choose makes it possible to print at various angles, on a wide variety of substrates. Ultimately, the right choice in coding and marking systems results in high quality codes, high-speed printing, and the ability to react to smaller batch sizes. Environmental issues are another concern, as manufacturers are coming under more and more pressure to reduce their carbon footprint while maximizing efficiency. Manufacturers are working to reduce the negative impact on the environment by choosing solutions that reduce the need for replacement components and equipment designed to recycle ink that may go unused in the printing process. For nearly every concern food and beverage manufacturers face, there is a coding and marking solution that helps make the process more reliable and cost-effective. At Markem-Imaje we offer a wide array of coding and marking systems including laser, thermal transfer, small character hot melt inkjet, large character valvejet, print and apply labeling, and more.
